Kabi Thulo will kickstart this year’s performances at the Breytenbach Theatre with his experimental work, mohahlauli/BAHAHLAULI (traveller/TRAVELLERS).


Thulo is a lecturer at the Tshwane University of Technology’s Department of Drama and Film (Drama). His work is a performance-making process based on his research project that examines the process of directing practice within a particular context of devising performance from a South African perspective.

mohahlauli…, is consciously driven by the creative impulse of exploring a way in which (academic-) artistic research, which is process oriented and not product oriented, can possibly be publicly shared. Furthermore, …BAHAHLAULI is a collaborative artistic toyi-toyi attempting to debunk Mnzansi’s current capitalist practice of (theatre) arts product(ion) consumption through (re)valuing process and ‘frank talk’ (hopefully).

mohahlauli/BAHAHLAULI (traveller/TRAVELLERS) is facilitated by Thulo and devised in collaboration with cast and crew members. This work in process will be staged at 19:00 – 21:00 from 20 – 23 March, with a matinee performance at 13:00 -15:00 on 24 March, followed by a post-presentation conversation (‘Frank Talk’) at 16:00 – 18:00.

Tickets are R20 per student and R40 per adult.
